We provide bus service to students who live more than a mile from their neighborhood school and students with special needs. We do not normally provide transportation to students who live outside of their normal school boundaries.  

If your child walks to school, please call the Transportation Department at 360-662-8800 for details about safe walking routes.


You can pay for meals and many fees and fines directly to our main office or pay online through our district's Touchbase system after Aug. 12. For online payments, you’ll need to know your student’s ID number, which is on report cards and available from our main office.



You can see past payments. Please note that there is a $1.75 service charge, except for lunch payments.
